VDT Sponsor Membership

Become a part of the VDT community!

Many renowned companies are supporting the Verband Deutscher Tonmeister e.V. as sustaining members, forming an important pillar of the VDT community.

A sustaining membership has many advantages:

  • Your company may be invited to host a regional meeting on your premises or partner with VDT activities in other ways. By hosting or otherwise contributing to meetings and activities, you get the chance to network with VDT members, be it in person or during hybrid or purely virtual events.
  • You will have the opportunity to publish your own seminars or special events in our VDT newsletter.
  • You can participate in equipment sponsorship in and around our major international events (the Tonmeistertagung and the International Conference on Spatial Audio) or our seminars. To illustrate, numerous manufacturers of high-end PA and studio loudspeakers have contributed their products to 3D listening rooms and enjoyed excellent exposure among their primary target group.
  • Just like our individual members, a representative of your company will enjoy reduced admission fees to our events or those of our cooperating partner organisations.
  • You will enjoy rebates and favourable terms when booking an exhibition space at the Tonmeistertagung.
  • Where conditions permit, we will offer our sustaining members to be present at our smaller events with an info booth. During virtual or hybrid events, the limited sponsorship deals are reserved exclusively for our sustaining members.
  • You will receive our VDT magazine five (issued five times per year, in German), and can stay up-to-date about our activities with our weekly newsletter.
  • You will get favourable terms for advertising in or adding your own brochures to our magazine. Our advertorial news (combo of print ad, online news and newsletter announcement) is exclusively reserved for sustaining members. This allows you to achieve one hundred percent target group coverage, because our members are all professionals in the professional audio industry.
  • You will be listed prominently among our other sustaining members with Logo and link to your website.
  • And vice versa, sponsoring companies can publish our member logo on their own website.

Should you have further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We will be happy to help, and to forward you .

You are in excellent company!

Membership Rates

The minimum term for membership is two years. After this period, membership may be cancelled giving three months notice to the end of a quarter.

The annual membership rates are tiered according to the size of the company. Deciding factors are the sponsoring member's own assessment and willingness. More detailed price information is available .

The personal Membership

Sometimes sustaining membership just doesn't fit. If you are still looking for close contact with the VDT community, then why not find out more about personal membership of the VDT.

It also offers many advantages and paves the way to the entire German-speaking pro audio community.
